These boards are a clone of Nelson Pass's original PCBs that he gave away as prizes to a few lucky attendees of Burning Amp 2021 in November. The schematic is attached to post #1 of the mini ACA thread , and the mechanical drawing is attached to post #311 of the mini ACA thread. When you open the mechanical drawing you will discover that these boards ARE NOT designed to fit a 5 x 7 picture frame. They're smaller and cuter than that.

The only "revisions" (differences between the ones Kevin just ordered, and the prototype boards I gave away for free in Dec-Jan) are
  • PCB epoxy changed from red to green
  • Copper thickness doubled, from 35 microns ("1 ounce") to 70 microns ("2 ounces")
  • Trimmer potentiometer layout fixed, so "clockwise" in Nelson's adjustment instructions, are actually "clockwise" on this PCB
  • Giant banner text "EXPERIMENTAL" removed from bottom side of board
  • Top side silkscreen text changed from "PROTOTYPE REV" to "REV A"
If you want a PCB that's 5 x 7 and if you don't want a PCB that's 4.75 x 5.05, I recommend that you (a) take your name off this Group Buy; and (b) wait patiently for Nelson Pass to redesign his PCB, then get it manufactured and shipped to the diyAudio Store, where it will eventually be sold someday.

Could combine shipping to the UK with JRKO.

The two members living in the UK have agreed to combine the shipping and one member will distribute the boards in their country.

Would any other members living in the same country be willing to do this?

For instance: The shipping rate to Hong Kong using USPS First Class International is around $19. If members @diykong and @kchau22 could combine their shipping and make arrangements to exchange boards and money within Hong Kong, this would save money and make my life easier.

Let me know.

Thanks,
Kevin

This is pretty cool :cool:

At JLCPCB I can monitor the boards as they go through production:

Hi Kevin,

I looked at my email settings and I think they are okay, at least the check box is marked to receive email when a conversation is started.

In the meantime, could you use brandon(at)candw.ky

Thanks

Andrew
